Hi -
is there a way to show either a regular or supertooltip on one of your buttons when it is disabled?

Hi Julie,

Thanks for your interest in SYncfusion product. If you want to show the tooltip of the disabled button then you can write your own delegate and activate the tooltip in that event. Please refer to the following code snippet.

public delegate void ButtonMouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs args);
public event ButtonMouseMove buttonmousemove;
public Form1()
this.buttonmousemove += new ButtonMouseMove(Form1_buttonmousemove);
ToolTip tip = new ToolTip();
private void Form1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
RectangleF bounds = this.buttonAdv1.Bounds;
RectangleF rect= new RectangleF(e.X,e.Y,0,0);
if (bounds.IntersectsWith(rect))
this.buttonmousemove(sender, e);
tip.Active = false;

void Form1_buttonmousemove(object sender, MouseEventArgs args)
tip.Active = true;
tip.SetToolTip(this, "Button");

I have attached the sample that demonstrates this completely. You can download the sample from the following page


Please refer to it and let me know if you have any questions.
